Both pressure- and volume-limited non-invasive positive pressure ventilation (NPPV) have been used in patients with chronic respiratory failure. The aim of the present study was to compare the efficacy of ventilation during nocturnal volume- and pressure-limited NPPV. Fifteen patients (nine COPD, six non-COPD) were randomly assigned to receive either volume-limited or pressure-limited NPPV and were switched to the complementary mode after 6 weeks. Ten patients (five COPD, five non-COPD… CONTINUE READING
